Presenting

From a young age, I knew I wanted to be a journalist. I loved how reporters got to explore something new every day and tell it to the world at six o’clock. RTRFM is the first and most intriguing step in my career journey.

How did you become involved in the station?

The station was looking for news presenters. I had never heard of RTRFM but I sent in a demo anyway. Now i’m lucky enough to read every week! After putting together a few packages, I decided to enroll in the presenter course and eventually became a member. I haven’t looked back.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

Such a hard question. There’s so many more. Honorable mentions to So Fresh – The Hits of Autumn 2002 and The Sims soundtrack.

The Strokes – Room On Fire (or Is This It)
Alison Krauss and Union Station – Paper Airplane
Pearl Jam – Ten
Shania Twain – Up!
Maroon 5- Song About Jane

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

There is such a great community within the station. I’m always meeting new people here. You get exposed to some really great local and indie music that doesn’t get heard anywhere else. Volunteering at RTR events is always a good yarn.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you at RTRFM?

A fringe festival comedian being interviewed on Breakfast looked at me through the studio window when I sat down and blurted on air “Who is that? That’s your news reader? He looks 15! Child Labour!”

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

The Mag. As a student journalist, a morning talks program is the holy grail. I’d also love to #journalise everyone’s morning.

What do you do in real life?

I spend most of my week at Curtin University, either studying hard or working in the Abacus Labs. In my spare time I love FOOD, photography, film-making, keeping up with the news agenda (not the Kardashians) and camouflaging into train seats with my transperth t-shirt.
